Matches my flooring really nicely, great size and I like that it is open so you do not need to drill holes for cords or anything. It does not hold my TV, my TV is wall mounted. This just holds my equipment attached to my TV, but I think it is sturdy enough to hold any TV. I was nervous about all the sticker reviews, but mine came off easily so do not let that deter you from buying. People mentioned ripping the finish off with the stickers in some reviews. Well let is be clear, there is no real finish. This is in no way shape or form a wood vernier it is a vinyl like sticker of a nice oak wood pattern and in a gray/brown color. Some may think is cheap, but for the price it does look good!
The entertainment center is overall a great quality. Assembly was difficult due to poor instructions and diagrams, so pay attention to details! The pictures do show orientation of components however they can be musleading. The sliding doors work great. There are magnets inside that help lock them in center or edge so.they do notdrift. This unit is particle board/composite, however it is pretty durable. The panels are very thick and we will designed. Upon delivery, I did notice the base had a crack. I do not believe this is a defective in quality, but poor shipper treatment. The packaging was well packages from manufacterer so that is not an issue. Due to it is weight I suggest inspecting the box for damage upon arrival, and having a second hand to move it!
This unit is very easy to assemble, I only had difficulty with one part (and that is saying a lot since I am a 60 year old female who is not very strong physically) - the last step of assembly is to screw some very long screws into 8 holes to attach the bottom of the shelf. Those screws were blunt bottom, not sharp, and they would not screw in no matter what I tried, even when I tried starting the hole with a big nail. After five minutes, I gave up and just used nails in place of the screws.
